Teaser Tuesday #25: Glory Over Everything by Kathleen Grissom

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn at Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (some times you need more than two for it to make sense).
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers

This week's teaser comes from Glory Over Everything by Kathleen Grissom

This a follow up to Kathleen Grissom's Kitchen House which reads as a standalone novel. It follows Jamie Pyke, son of a mulatto slave and white master as he searches for a new life. Take a peek at the teasers below:

"You know, darling. First the heir, then the affair" p155

"Though he did not verbally share himself, his loneliness was palpable, as great as my own." p157

""Life is meant to be lived," she said, "and I mean to live it!"" p341

Let's Take a Shelfie is the final stop on Simon & Schuster Canada's blog tour for Glory Over Everything. Come back tomorrow to check out my review.

What are you reading this week? Leave me your TT in the comments below and I'll be sure to check it out!


  1. I enjoyed the excerpts. Probably not one I'd just pick up but I would keep reading this.

    My TT from Girl Of Mine

  2. I have The Kitchen House but haven't read it yet. I wasn't aware there was another one! I'll have to get it now too and read them both. Great teasers! Here's mine: http://booklovingmommy.blogspot.com/2016/04/teaser-tuesday-what-dead-want-by-norah.html

  3. I have heard good things about The Kitchen House, but have not heard much about this one. It's good to know it stands well on its own. I would definitely be interested in reading more.

    Here's my Tuesday Teaser.

  4. I love books that have teachable elements to them. One should absolutely live life! <3
